ROCKLAND — Hundreds of people paid their respects at a memorial service to celebrate the life of a 47-year-old Maine woman whose body was found alongside a road last month.

Katrina Windred, of Friendship, was remembered Saturday as a three-time cancer survivor, a competitive skier, a horse trainer and a devoted mother during a packed memorial service at Rockland’s First Universalist Church.

According to the Bangor Daily News, the Rev. Mark Glovin told the crowd that the service was a “celebration” of Windred’s life with “all of its sparkle and all of its shine.”

Thirty-five-year-old Arnold Diana has been charged with murder for allegedly strangling his ex-girlfriend to death and then dumping her body along the road in Rockland.
